Mistake or Miracle?

A few of you dear friends have been asking about my hand and wishing me a quick recovery.
Thank you so much... and so, here are the results...

When I went to get my X-rays done yesterday, the doctors actually let me see them (they didn't offer to show me the first time and I didn't think to ask) and it appears that I only have a break in my pinky finger! No... not a shattered bone in my hand like the other Doctor told me so convincingly.

I had been walking around for 9 days with this awful contraption on my left limb...

...when it appears that I only needed this!

So it seems that either the doctors made a big mistake... OR... I've had a miracle.

I'd love to say it was a miracle but I guess I'll never know! : )

Have you ever broken any bones? Which was the worst?

(And I've posted here as well.)


  1. I am so glad to read that it is not as bad as the doctors originally said!! It still looks very painful though! Some of God's miracles we'll never know!

    I've only ever had several badly sprained fingers -- although I think one or two might even have been broken. I never went in for xrays though. One finger has never been straight since. I still love playing volleyball though!

  2. the only broken bone I have ever had was my tailbone when I delivered our first child. I sat on a donut for 6 weeks. And even 10 years later if I sit too long on a hard chair, it will throb!

  3. Oh no, I missed that. We'll go ahead and give God the glory. I haven't had a broken bone, but my daughter has had three hairline fractures at different times which necessitated a cast, poor dear. Not fun at all!

  4. Katrina,

    I'm going to say that you have a miracle! Just look at how you don't have to wear that huge arm thing any longer ;O) I hope you are getting along okay as a momma and a wife being injured.

    PS I love love love that house coat. My mom has tons of old patterns from the fifties. I think I will go and take a peak and see if I can find something like that. Wouldn't that be a fun winter project. (like I'm not full of projects already ;O) )

  5. Glad to hear of good news about your hand. My son had the opposite problem, a missed fracture of his tiny wrist despite two adjacent x-rays!

  6. I'm so glad to hear that it's not as bad as they first thought! Glory to God!

  7. Glad to hear your whole arm is no longer mummified :) I'll pray for quick healing of your pinky!

    Thankfully I've only ever broken a toe and there's not much you can do about that (besides complain - of which I did plenty!)

  8. well... that's good news, but it's still... OUCH. Hope it heals up quick... take good care of it!

  9. I can't remember how I found your blog, but just wanted to say I love the photographs. The branches covered in snow and ice -- so beautiful.

    Worst broken bone: cracked rib -- and my family will never let me forget that we missed going to Legoland because of it:(

  10. Oh the photos are great! I broke a finger really bad last year- it was so painful! And such a huge annoyance as well. Last time I broke a bone before that it was my wrist, but to me it was easier because I had a mommy to take care of me then. This time I WAS the mommy and my four kids didn't appreciate having to fold all the laundry (but I sure did. haha!)

  11. That's wonderful! I choose to believe that it is a miracle! But I do hope it heals quickly. I'm sure it is not making life easy!


I appreciate your thoughts and read each and every one... thank you!
